Ackerman - Impeach Jay Bybee

Bybee (now a 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge) and John Yoo (now a tenured professor at UC Berkeley) are responsible for the torture memos. Bruce Ackerman, whose office is only about 40 miles from UConn, takes Bybee to task in this op-ed piece posted on Slate. Here's the best part...
"While John Yoo did most of the staff work for Bybee, Yoo was barely 35 years old—and his memos showed it. They not only took extreme positions; they were legally incompetent, failing to consider many of the most obvious counterarguments. Bybee was 49. He was the grown-up, the seasoned jurist."
